Morocco has the power to mesmerize you and crack your heart wide open to the loving kindness and beauty it has to offer through the cultural mix of traditional and modern life, diverse nature ranging from long, sandy beaches and the Atlas mountains, to the stunning desert.
This journey is designed to offer you a complete experience of what Morocco has to offer in combination with an in-depth yoga and meditation program.
You will spend 4 nights at a beautiful beach resort in Tafedna, an hour South from Essaouira. In this tranquil area, famous for its argan trees, we dive deep into a daily yoga and meditation practice while enjoying the sun, beach, and beauty that surrounds you.
From Tafedna we travel to Aït Benhaddou, a beautiful Berber village in the Atlas Mountains. We will spend the night at this stunning Unesco site and learn more about the Berber culture, known for its carpets and hospitality.
The next day our journey will continue through the Atlas mountains into the desert where we will spend two nights in a beautiful camp with white nomadic tents. Practicing yoga in a nomadic tent, enjoying camel ride and listening to Tuareg and Berber songs around the campfire at night.
Each day Marije Paternotte will guide you through yoga practices, meditation, and self-inquiry on and off the mat, which will foster a deeply meaningful connection with your self and a mindful experience of the beautiful landscapes of Morocco. The nature of awareness and loving-kindness cultivated during this retreat will continue to serve you in everyday life.
Marije will offer her signature blend of understated mindful flow yoga, Yin Yoga, Pranayama and Mindfulness Meditation during this retreat. This retreat is open to all levels, yet some experience with yoga and meditation is recommended.
